India's leading independent news organisations, Newslaundry and The News Minute, join hands to bring you ground reports and shows from the five states holding elections.

About the project

Five states – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Mizoram – are all going to vote to elect new Assemblies.

And this election season, The News Minute and Newslaundry will join hands to bring you everything you need to know.

Will Shivraj Singh Chouhan get a fifth term as CM in Madhya Pradesh? Will Bhupesh Baghel’s policies help the Congress retain power in Chhattisgarh? What will be the impact of the power tussle between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan? How will KCR use the Telangana poll campaign for his party’s national expansion? Will the Manipur conflict play out in the Mizoram election? Will issues such as price rise, corruption, and unemployment matter at all?

Reporters and producers from Newslaundry and The News Minute will hit the ground to find the answers to these questions. Another Election Show will also return, featuring Dhanya, Sudipto, Manisha and Atul in the election states.

Together, we’ll bring you reports, analysis, interviews, videos and podcasts – all from the ground, not crafted in far-off studios. This is independent, ad-free reportage, and you can help us make it happen.
